43% Solar Eclipse from Prince Edward Island

This afternoon I observed the Partial Solar Eclipse from the comfort of my backyard. I took a series of photos to show the entire transit as visible from Souris, Prince Edward Island:

The big partial disk centred above is the 43% eclipse, the maximum obscuration phase at my location. The spots on the sun are sunspots, each big enough to swallow the Earth whole. Pretty cool eh?
